Platelet-Rich Fibrin

platelet-rich fibrin in Edmonton

Platelet-rich fibrin or PRF is a next-generation dermal filler that uses the patient’s own blood to promote collagen production and cell regeneration. PRF is made from a small sample of the patient’s blood, which is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood cells. The platelets are then injected into the treatment area, where they release growth factors that stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration.

platelet-rich fibrin Benefits

PRF has a number of advantages over other dermal fillers, including its ability to last longer, its safety (since it is made from the patient’s own blood), and its effectiveness in stimulating collagen production. PRF is also less likely to cause side effects than other dermal fillers, making it an ideal option for those who are looking for a safe and effective way to improve their appearance.

How to prepare for PRF?

There is no special preparation required for PRF treatment. However, it is important to avoid taking blood thinners such as aspirin or ibuprofen for at least a week before the procedure. These medications can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding. It is also important to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before the procedure. Alcohol can also increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.

platelet-rich fibrin FAQs

There is no definitive answer as to which is better. It depends on the individual’s needs and goals. PRF can be used to add temporary volume to the face, but stimulate collagen production, while dermal fillers can be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Some people may benefit from both treatments. Schedule a consultation with us to learn more about which treatment would be right for you.
PRP and PRF are similar in that they both use the patient’s own blood to promote collagen production. However, there are some key differences between the two. PRP is made from a larger sample of blood, which is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood cells. The platelets are then injected into the treatment area. PRF is made from a similar blood sample, which is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood cells. The platelets are then mixed with fibrin (a protein that helps blood clot) to form a gel and injected into the treatment area. PRP has been shown to be effective in treating a number of conditions, including hair loss, joint pain, and skin rejuvenation. PRF can be used instead of a dermal filler and has been shown to be effective in treating wrinkles, fine lines, and hypertrophic acne scars.
The term natural fillers have been introduced in the field of cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery to refer to mixing any fillers with PRP. So basically, combining Voluma with PRP or Sculptra with PRP will produce “natural fillers”. We have a protocol that we have developed over the years for the best mixture, and it varies from one filler to another and according to the site of injection. Each clinic has its own way of preparing its own natural filler.
PRF is administered in a series of treatments separated by six to eight weeks. Results normally persist between one and three weeks, after which the volume will fade. Long-term benefits, such as skin tightening, collagen formation, and improved skin quality, may not be noticeable for up to three to four months and may last between six and twelve months. After six weeks of first therapy, the predicted advantages and outcomes of PRF treatment are often visible.
PRF is a safe and effective treatment with minimal side effects. The most common side effect is temporary bruising or swelling at the injection site. Other rare side effects can include infection, skin irritation, and allergic reaction.
